Symmetry - Poem by Siobhan Livingstone

Symmetry
The very word
Oozes it.
Beautifully,
Balanced.

We seek it out.
We search with eager eye.
We stare in the mirror.
We scan the crowd.

Hoping to find
The one with
Perfect eyes,
Either side of
Perfect nose.

One with lips
Of equal pout.
One with breasts
Proud and pert

The one whose ass
Is full and round
Legs endlessly rising
Up from the ground
BUT.

There is
NO Symmetry in
a lopsided grin.
NO symmetry in
one loving heart.

NO symmetry in
Two plus one
earrings,
hanging near a
face, that never
launched a thousand ships,
or broke a hundred hearts,
or caused men,
to score her ten.

Yet there is
Symmetry,
in my love for you.
Symmetry,
in your love for me.
Symmetry.
In we two.
